The State Government, through the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD), is committed to attracting investment into Western Australia's agribusiness, fisheries and food industries. 

We are pleased to announce our support of Agrifuture's evokeAG 2023 Down to Earth conference. 

About the conference

To be held in Adelaide from 21 to 22 February 2023, it's the region's premier agrifood tech event, attracting the entire ecosystem - farmers, innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, producers, start-ups, government and professionals working in agribusiness, finance and IT.  
It will bring the brightest and the best together to talk about global agrifood innovation and tech and how these collide, intersect, connect, translate, complement and challenge our most important assets - our people, our farms, our soil, our water and our earth.  
Across two days 100 change agents and thought leaders in agrifood tech from eight different countries, will push the boundaries and lead 1,500 delegates on a deep dive into the issues, trends and opportunities that will shape our food and farming systems into the future.
Find out more about the conference at the evokeAG website.
